August 30, 2022 -- Lehi, UT. Yewno, a pioneer in Artificial Intelligence-based research solutions, and Integrated Library System provider SirsiDynix have partnered together to provide a best-in-class solution for disambiguation and next generation discovery. Together, they are offering their enhanced search technology, Yewno Disambiguate and Yewno Relate, via the SirsiDynix CloudSource OA platform.
CloudSource OA makes it easy for libraries to take advantage of the growing body of Open Access content available today. Using CloudSource, libraries can access a comprehensive collection of vetted, quality OA articles, journals, eBooks, OER, and more in a way that is both seamless and intuitive. Yewno's AI-based tools help researchers become more efficient by uncovering hidden content, providing visual representations of the connections between concepts, offering definitions of specialized terminology, and disambiguating search terms.
On the CloudSource platform, Yewno Disambiguate appears as a drop-down box with options for selecting the most appropriate/relevant concepts. The Yewno Relate widget then displays the search result in a knowledge graph format, including related concepts. By going beyond traditional keyword search to help patrons find what they are looking for faster, this solution makes Open Access not only discoverable, but also truly navigable and even more useful.
"We currently have a number of active customers and more libraries trialing," says Rick Branham, VP Pre-Sales, Academic & Content Solutions at SirsiDynix CloudSource OA. "If you would like to trial Yewno Disambiguate and Yewno Relate via CloudSource in your library, please visit us to learn more." Yewno COO Ruth Pickering expands further on the benefits of the technology, "Disambiguation is a huge advantage embedded within all of Yewno's AI powered solutions. It makes results lists more accurate and helps end users clarify exactly what they mean to get the items that are relevant, rather than a long list of things that aren't quite right. We also go further, offering the interactive knowledge graph visualization which gives context and suggests additional concepts related to the original search that the patron might not have been aware of. We are excited that SirsiDynix is applying this technology to their OA product to help people get the maximum value from these important content sources which are growing exponentially."
Founded in 2015, Yewno is helping the world to uncover the undiscovered through its advanced dynamic Knowledge Graph and AI based inference engine, which introduces an entirely new approach to knowledge extraction. Yewno Inference Engine incorporates machine learning, neural networks, and computational linguistics into an intelligent framework to enhance human understanding by correlating concepts across a vast volume of sources. With offices in New York and Palo Alto, CA, Yewno has numerous partnerships across top research universities, publishers, and content aggregators worldwide. For more information, visit www.yewno.com
